New Mexico Elopement + Intimate Wedding Photographer
Albuquerque, NM

Crystal Cousin Photo


My name is Crystal Cousin and I am a photographer based in Albuquerque, NM. I moved here from Florida August 2018 to go full time with my photography in the beautiful desert! My husband, Dylan, is my awesome second shooter for weddings and elopements and I could not ask for a better partner for this.

We eloped in Sedona, AZ in October 2018 and it was the most magical day! My sister and her husband were our only guests, (plus our photographers of course) and I would not have had it any other way. Since we made our decision to elope I have been obsessed with the idea and want to help my couples plan and capture their perfect, intimate and adventurous day together.

Whether it is just the two of you, or your closest 20 friends and family, I think photography is so important for whatever kind of day you end up having. Photos are the one thing that you will have for the rest of your lives to look back on your wedding day!

Love Notes

“Crystal is badass! If you don’t want the typical wedding / baby photos, she’s your girl! We flew in from Minneapolis to get our photos and I 100% recommend everyone doing the same. She took us to a pretty secluded spot; no other people around. It was just myself, my husband, and Crystal which made the whole experience 10000x more special. Her style, in my own words, is very moody which makes the photos stand out from any other photographer. Thanks, Crystal!!!!”
– Lauren P.
“Crystal was amazing to work with! She was incredibly responsive and attentive, and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Her photos are absolutely gorgeous and we couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. She really captured the essence of our unique, beautiful tiny wedding.”
– Anna I.
“Crystal and her wonderful husband are the perfect pair to make any dream a reality. With them came so much comfort, professionalism and grace. They make your special day feel like a fairy tail and capture one of the happiest moments of your life!”
– Bethany N.

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?


What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

Many of my couples are pretty chill and are cool with just going with the flow and I love that. For elopements I always have a timeline to guide us, but couples that are okay with certain things taking longer or shorter than expected, or even adding on something that just popped into one of our heads is the best! Elopements are truly about what the couple wants to do and I love when they truly understand that we can do whatever they want.

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

First looks always get me when couples decide to do them. It is such an intimate and quick moment of relief and happiness between the couple and I love seeing all the different reactions and emotions. Hearing vows is also something that is so special too. I am so honored that sometimes my husband and I are the only people to be there to see and hear such a special moment; often for people who we have never met in person before the day!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

Yes! I am honestly willing to go wherever a couple wants to take me. I travel around New Mexico a lot, but other places I love are Moab and Sedona where I eloped! The desert is my favorite, but I am a sucker for some foresty mountains and the PNW is also so dreamy. Take me anywhere!
